What's Your Water?

It's a simple question but weird to answer.  The type of water we drink has never been a concern for me until I became a mother.  I grew up drinking boiled tap water, and I think we turned out fine and healthy.

There are so many types of water available now, and it's quite confusing, to be honest.  As a mom, I'm responsible for what we eat and drink, even outside the home.  I try to educate myself on finding what's best give to my family, water included.

Going back to the question of water - we don't have a water filter at home, so we consume boiled tap, and order alkaline water since the adults, myself included, are acidic.  But when we're not home and there's no other option but to buy water, I choose Absolute distilled water.  Distilled water is considered the purest form of water that's free of contaminants.  You can learn more about distilled water here.  Since I can't control what water is available outside the home, I know distilled water is my safest bet.

For medical reasons, I also buy Absolute.  Just recently, my girl was prescribed an antibiotic suspension, so I bought Absolute since distilled water was called for to dilute the powder.

There are so many bottled water in the market and there really is no assurance that they are clean and safe.  We just have to trust that the manufacturers are honorable and honest with their claims.  That said, I'm glad I was tapped to do this post because I learned that Absolute Pure Distilled Drinking Water is certified pure and safe by NSF, an international health and safety organization recognized by the World Health Organization.

Absolute Pure Distilled Drinking Water
  • the only brand in the Philippines certified by the National Sanitation Foundation International (NSF)
  • the only bottled water brand in the country that has passed the standards of FDA (Food and Drug Administration), IBWA (International Bottled Water Association), and NSF
  • has undergone thorough purification and distillation process, making it the cleanest water for your baby's and family's safety
So what is NSF?

NSF International helps protect customers by certifying products worldwide and writing internationally-recognized standards for food, water and consumer goods.
As an independent, non-profit, global public health and safety organization, NSF is committed to improving human health and safety worldwide.

Knowing this gave me peace of mind.  I checked the certification of Absolute from NSF and found it here.  That's our guarantee that Absolute distilled drinking water is pure and safe.  In the end, we all need to make informed choices for our family's health and well-being.

How about you, what's your water?
